Beloved Radio Now 100.9 listeners:

I’m writing this letter to inform you that as of today–Friday, July 30, 2010–I will be leaving Radio Now. I began this incredible ride on January 26, 2008, and my world has since completely changed for the better.

It’s hard for me to believe that I’ve been here longer than Scotty Davis, and basically everybody except Rayne, but it’s true! I was provided a tremendous opportunity, and I definitely ran with it! I’ve been fortunate to meet and mingle with so many amazing people, from Jason DeRulo to Ke$ha to Nelly, and many more. But more importantly, I’ve made lifelong friends and found out a lot about who I am.

Whether it was at the Brickyard, or the Lady Gaga show, or Santa Slam, I have gotten to know many of you personally over the years, and I thank you very much for allowing me to entertain you for the past two-and-a-half years. It is the nature of our business for DJs to come and go, but the one constant is you. You, the listeners, are the reason all of us do what we do, and the reason why Radio Now 100.9 is so successful. Thank you for your support!

I’ll be taking my talents to Roanoke, Virginia, to become the new host of the night show at WJJS-FM beginning Monday, August 9th. If you’d like to keep up with what I’m doing, my Facebook and Twitter feeds will stay the same, and I’ll be visiting Indy as much as I can. This is not the end for me…only a new chapter! This experience would not have been possible without each of you, so again, thank you. As I depart the 317 for the 540, I say farewell one last time…the only way I know how…

Slater, later!
